I'm in the minority here, but 5-15 just doesn't have that spark imo. Shows like 5-02, 5-07, and 5-14 feature tighter playing. And a June '70 surprise would have had me typing in that credit card # a lot quicker.

Maybe 5-15 just needs another listen though. 4 discs from 1970 for $23 is a nice release, and I'll support the cause.

And I won't complain after the brilliant fall 71 Road Trips, which has turned into a top 3 or 4 release for me.

5-15 wouldn't have been my first choice either--not because I have SBDs but because as you say some of the performances lack spark. But I've been so looking forward to commercial releases of 1970 acoustic material, and the acoustic material in these shows is generally quite good, IIRC, that I'm still delighted to see this release.
